It crossed my mind, absolutely. Just to imagine that, in theory, Facebook could push aoe 2 content to the two billion members or whatever they have. I don’t like the idea of implementing gaming/stream watching with Facebook (where I already waste too much time), but through facebook streams, there’s a good chance a lot of aoe2 old timers who don’t know the game still excists, and new people who are just curious about RTS, might find their way into our community!Have people considered this might be good for Age?
The analytics show there is a huge amount of viewers on FB Gaming and it is increasing. There isn't a good Age streamer over there in English, now there is? There is still plenty of content on twitch and now there is someone out there exposing new people to Age on Facebook. If they push him too, that could be even more.
T90 is moving to Facebook, it isn't like a sportsman moving to another team. You, as a viewer, support Age 2. You are a fan of this game. You are not a fan of twitch. If you are a fan of twitch then you need to give your head a wobble. This sportsman is still playing for your team, just exposing your team to new communities. Maybe you won't go over and watch them anymore, that is fine, your decision. I already hardly watch twitch anymore, the world is speeding up, YouTube highlights are much better for me, I moved from Twitch to Youtube recorded vids. Do I still like Age? Yes. Do I still like the streamers I liked before? Yes. But I, as a viewer, watch elsewhere. I still support them in my own way just as T90 is about to still support Age elsewhere.
Is Facebook a great company? No. Is Amazon... Obviously No. Get over yourself if you have watched anything on twitch, jeeze.
lul every single streamer/celebrity/whoever who market products to their fans that they don't even use or know anything about is someone who is exploiting their community to make a quick buck.Only a couple hours after he posted that video and people questioned it, he admitted he wasn’t well informed. He invested and sold cryptocurrency in the past so he thought he was helping more than hurting. He cancelled the deal, deleted the video, and apologized for not researching it more. He also said that he shouldn’t promote something which can cause his viewers to lose a lot of money like crypto. I can respect that. He genuinely made a mistake and wasn’t trying to exploit his community to make a quick buck.
For all who are justifiably worried about needing to use their real name to watch Facebook gaming streams, I believe you can set up some sort of "gaming profile" (or whatever you want to call it) that uses a username and not your real name.
I have not set that up myself though so there's definitely more playing around with that needed to be sure.
For me it's the exact opposite, I watch a lot of Twitch and YouTube streams but almost all the smaller YT streams I have found on Twitter/Twitch while all of my Twitch streams I have found over the twitch website thanks to raids or the recommended section.Youtube has a much more complex and better algorithm than Twitch which makes it easier for peolple to find new/smaller streamers, cause YouTube can predict what kinds of streams you might like based on the kind of videos you watch in the platform.
No, T90 and I are friends. We're great friends. Sure, it's been almost a year now since he last responded to my Twitch whispers, but he's really busy and sometimes it's healthy for friends to go a year without any direct contact with each other. In fact, I'm actually thinking about paying him a visit in Florida. It would be a great opportunity for me to show him some of the numerous charcoal sketches I've done of him (naked, of course).Guys, none of your favourite players, streamers, sportstars etc are loyal to you. 11
Try not to be in a one-sided relationship with them.
Congrats T90. He did a lot to bring me back into a game I played 20 years ago. Without him I wouldn’t have known this game was still around.
